This recipe for Sun Gold Tomato Pasta doesn’t require cooking the sauce at all, allowing those sugary sweet sun gold tomatoes to shine. My favorite pasta dish EVER!


  • 3 cups sun gold or other sweet cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
  • 12 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • freshly cracked black pepper
  • 1 cup finely grated pecorino romano
  • 1/2 lb long pasta like spaghetti or linguine
  • 1 cup loosely packed fresh basil, roughly chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh oregano, minced


  1. Place the tomatoes, garlic, olive oil, salt, pepper and pecorino cheese in a large bowl. Mix them all together and press on the tomatoes with the back of a spoon to release their juices. Continue mixing until it forms a sauce, then set aside while you cook the pasta.
  2. Cook the pasta in boiling, heavily salted water until al dente. Drain the pasta, then immediately transfer it to the bowl of tomatoes. Toss to coat, adding a few tablespoons of pasta water to loosen it up, and a little bit more cheese if need be to thicken it. Toss in the basil and oregano at the last minute.
  3. Plate the pasta and finish with a sprinkling more of cheese and basil if desired.
